Connie was born in the Benson area on October 12, 1927, the daughter of Rudolph and Sadie (Hermann) Wiese. She moved with her family to Alexandria, where she graduated from high school.
In 1947, Connie was united in marriage to Ray C. Morse and the couple settled in Alexandria. They moved to California in 1955, where Ray worked as a meat cutter and Connie was a homemaker to their three children. In 1969 the family returned to Alexandria.
While in Alexandria, Connie worked at the north Dairy Queen, Tastee Freeze, and for more than 25 years at Pete’s County Market, where she was employed in the bakery. For the last three years she worked part-time at Elden’s Food Fair as a food demonstration hostess.
Some of the many things Connie will be remembered for are her infectious smile and great sense of humor.
